From DAVIDsTEA

Nuts for chocolate

David was eating breakfast: toast with chocolate hazelnut spread and a cup of oolong tea. He took a bite, then a sip. Then he got that look in his eye. A light bulb went off. Why not combine the two? Rich, dark chocolate. Smooth-drinking oolong. And just a hint of hazelnut. The result? Sweet, satisfying and a little bit nutty. It’s the perfect breakfast and the perfect tea, all rolled into one.

Ingredients: Oolong tea, cocoa husks, cocoa beans, black tea, liquorice, natural hazelnut flavouring, artificial cream, chocolate and caramel flavouring .

Yesterday was back to work for yours truly. There were stressful bits and good bits..but I’m tired and am glad I do not work again until Friday and get to stay home today while it is raining and gray outside.

Wanted to try the last of the new Winter teas from DT and am looking forward to this one.

It smells like chocolate/cocoa dark mostly..but the hazelnut wisps..that grabs me.Smells like Dark Hot chocolate ALMOST..it’s a long way from a boring cup of cocoa..I can tell.

My one touch Breville machine has just alerted me my steep is done. Let’s see if this one’s a winner of a position of tea prominence in my collection or tea to give away.

Now I don’t mind artificial flavor and tend to enjoy my flavored teas as much as the ones never touched by anything except sunshine and the hands of god. I don’t complain about it..It’s 2014 and dammit there are SO MANY CHOICES ..no point in being bitter( see what I did there?)
On to the tea!

it smells,once brewed VERY nutty and gently sweet.

Taste is interesting..there is a bit of a almost Splenda like aftertaste?? I don’t mind artificial tastes as I’ve pointed out but I’ve NEVER experienced one that TASTED like a sweetener MOSTLY and I hate HATE Splenda and this it tastes like robot . Now that is odd.I hate sweeteners that overwhelm the tea and this has done that tenfold.The whole point of me not sweetening my tea for the last 3 years and learning to let the tea speak not the sugar is to make it an experience not cheapen the hell out of a ‘could have been decent,but they tried too hard tea’. I mean if you LOVE splenda and sweeteners this tea will be GREAT for you.

First MAJOR disappointment of 2014.
ONLY GET THIS TEA IF YOU LIKE SPLENDA AND SWEETEN EVRYTHING. you’ve been warned.Lots of DT as artificial..but they’ve never sweetened in this obscene manner..color me totally disappointed and about to dump out an entire 3 cups ..wow DT…I can’t believe it.
I can’t get rid of the Splenda aftertaste….what a disaster.

It is a little bit deeper in flavor than say the toasted walnut but in the same regard it is a bit more mellow in all-around nuances that much I can admit. I would most likely recommend this as a good tea to start the day with as it is very mild and pairs well with morning toast. As a Winter tea I can imagine this making a great base for hot cocoa and as something to drink by the crackling fire with a cozy blanket just for the nostalgia this tea provides.

This one is not terrible for me, but not my favorite as far as oolongs go. I like the creaminess, and floralness of oolongs, and chocolate does something that overpowers that for me.. its a nice hot cup to warm you up in this cold weather.. but won’t be one I rush to stock up on

Not my cup of tea, quite literally in this case! I love Nutella, I do not love oolongs, I was on the fence but the bf was crazy about trying this tea. I don’t hate this tea, but I really don’t love it either. I can definitely taste the licorice, but honestly I didn’t realize what I was tasting until people started mentioning the licorice in the comments. The tea is not awful, but it is super smoky and I wish it had emphasized the chocolate a lot more than the licorice, hazelnut blend it focused on. This will certainly not be a tea we will be looking to hoard at my house.

I was given a sample of this, and while it’s a perfectly pleasant tea, I probably won’t be buying it. It’s a bit unimpressive after the other oolongs I’ve tried. I guess if I’m really in the mood for chocolate hazelnut, I’d rather have it in coffee or hot cocoa.

Wow. Another yummy tea! I don’t know what I was expecting, but from reading the previous reviews on how this tastes like liquid Nutella, I can see that they were not kidding!

I didn’t even have to add anything into this, seeing as it’s oolong and I like plain oolong. I was thinking maybe because of the black tea, but it’s not necessary.

At first sip, it’s a little strange. Very earthy, woodsy, and NUTTY. Very nutty. Must be the hazelnut flavouring and cocoa beans! But the real kicker – is the aftertaste. I thought maybe this tea was going to stay nutty all the way but wait. NOooooo…. before taking the next sip, a flood of sweetness spread in my mouth, on my tongue and the roof of my mouth and inside my cheeks. Like I just took a bite out of a chocolate. MMMMmmmm!!!!

Okay, I’m sad I only got a sample size of this but really – I have a lit of teas I need to finish up! This one I might just go and buy more of!

When I stopped by yesterday to get a cup of Santa’s Secret to go, I just could not resist the urge to pick up a sample of this. I was intrigued by this one ever since I heard the name (which I still have no idea how to properly pronounce! lol) I steeped myself a cup of this earlier this morning and was very pleasantly surprised. I was not sure about this one after reading the comments about the liquorice being too strong; I have to say that I barely tasted the liquorice and I think that it added to the richness of the tea. I could taste the oolong in this tea and have to say that it was a very good choice as the tea-base of the tea. This tea tastes and smells like a high-end Nutella (by that I mean that it had a stronger mocha flavour). I loved it and already want to pick up more! I can’t wait to get home to have more of this tea!

I’ve been trying to figure out why I absolutely love this tea and why everyone around me seems to think it’s complete garbage. Licorice, that’s why. Like many things in my life I happen to love licorice teas (and hibiscus too, lol). I think I would have preferred this tea with a black tea base rather than an oolong as I find the tea really thin for what it’s supposed to encompass. But yeah, it’s surprisingly licoricey. I tried it even before reading what was in it and I was wondering why I had a strange mouth feel… dat be licorice bro.

I’m actually having it as a latte right now and it is really, really good. I love chocolate hazelnut anything, so that helps, but I think the licorice gives it something special. Personally.

I need to find a way to fix the licorice in here because it is overwhelming. I’m so disappointed in it :(

I can’t get this one to taste strong enough for my taste. I found it very bland, even with agave and foamed milk added to it with a little cocoa powder sprinkled on top. I thought it would be the perfect dessert tea but it only has a faint nutella aftertaste, I find it disapponting.

Still my favourite tea! The buy 50 get 50 promo has resulted in a nice stock of this tea when it inevitably disappears from David’s.
